  • Solonoid on 9N
  • How do I replace the old one with the new type?

  • Are you asking about the starter clutch and pinion assembly (also called a Bendix)?

  • Touché Randy! The roundcan cutout circuit is often confused with being a solenoid too. That should about cover every possibility so we've given him a lot to consider. Look forward to his reply and hope he doesn't feel intimidated and he ran off. A question was asked and we replied as best as we could. I suspect he has other issues such as a dead battery. The starter motor ( battery and generator too)can be tested at a starter/alternator shop.

  • He didn't use either of those words, but it sure wouldn't surprise me if you didn't hit the nail on the head!

  • HiYa Pete-
    We need some clarification. First, if you mean the starter motor solenoid, all 9N and 2N models never used one. Starter motors were simply a 1-Wire unit with no solenoid. The 8N Model introduced the 3-wire starter motor with a solenoid. If you are referring to the push button safety starter switch, there are two models used on the 9N. One is the early dash-mounted unit, before s/n 12500, and the other is used on all 9N/2N models after the switch was moved to the lower shifter cover by the gear shifter. That part is Ford 9N-11450. Master Parts Catalogs (MPC's)are a huge tool when tracing parts. We have all the 9N and 2N MPC's in our MANUALS forum/library for free download if you need them. You can buy quality new parts from Dennis Carpenter (see LINK) or JUST8N's.com. However, I highly suggest before you go buying any new parts, you perform a root cause problem solving method to determine what exactly is the issue and if a part is defective to beg8in with. 95% of all non-starting issues are due to incorrect wiring, 5% due to fuel issues. Tell us a bit more if you are having symptoms and if you are using a 6V/POS GRN system or a 12V switch out job.

  • 2 and 9N’s did not come from the factory with solenoids. They all had mechanical starter switches. When you press the starter switch, it pushes a piece of linkage into the switch which manually closes the contacts and completes the circuit. Unlike a solenoid which electrically closes the contacts and completes the circuit.

    Are you asking how to replace the mechanical starter switch with a solenoid?

    If so, you will find out that it's cheaper and easier to fix the mechanical switch.
